World Iron Awareness Week
13-19 April will mark this year’s World Iron Awareness Week, expanding on the New Zealand initiated ‘Are you getting enough?’ iron awareness campaign last year. This year’s campaign focus in New Zealand will be on women aged 15-50 years who are particularly at risk of going short on iron. Key messages of the campaign will tap into the signs of symptoms of have a low iron status, which often get put down running a busy lifestyle such as often feeling tired, grumpy, irritable and a lack of concentration.
